Sunday Snapshot

I admit it, I'm a bad blogger.  I'm inconsistent.  Oh, well, I'm over it. I've been a busy Mommy the past few weeks; trying to make up for 9 months of being in bed.  I'm up half the night with Handsome Jack (I forgot how hard the first few weeks of breastfeeding are, especially at 3 am) . This baby is an eating and exploding machine! 

Nathaniel started 3rd grade on Wednesday, London starts preschool this week.  

My fridge is clean. That's a small miracle.

  I wore perfume today- it was the first time since last fall. The world smells so different, I feel like my spirit is living in a new body.

Life is good again.

Time for a nap.

Here he is

Jack...born on 8/8/10  7lbs 7 oz 19.5  in. long.

Amazingly easy delivery.

Perfect little boy.

Was he worth it  all?

Just a quick post tonight- first of all, no baby yet.  But I am making some serious plans for what is next in my life and they include cleaning and organizing my house.  It's been neglected for the past...I don't know how many months, since December 7th, so 8 months, and I am pretty much overwhelmed with the mess.  

I found an awesome website called FLYLADY and I started the first baby step today- i deep cleaned my kitchen sink.  It felt great; and since I was up and started I got a lot more done, too.  If I can do this while I'm nauseous and 9 months pregnant, surely some of you can join me.  The site is free, and it breaks the first 31 days down into really, easy "baby steps" that help you get into good cleaning habits.  

I would love it if any of you wanted to try it along with me.  

I know I've already started, but you can do the first 2 steps tomorrow, or just know I'll be taking a quick break when I have this guy.  (I'll be induced on Monday- 8/9/10- if he doesn't come sooner.  I'm ready to start charging this  little guy rent)

Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think :)
